Parkinson’s Disease - Fight Back
Fight Parkinson’s Disease with Rock Steady boxing at Belmars
We are learning every day that there are ways in which people with Parkinson’s disease can enhance their daily quality of life and even build impressive power, strength, flexibility, and speed! By exercising with coaches who know the ropes, you can fight your way out of the corner and start to feel and function better.
Boxing works by moving your body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you progress through the workout. These classes have proven that anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s, can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier/happier life.
At Belmars, we are dedicated to improving the quality of life of people living with Parkinson's Disease.
Rock Steady Boxing was founded on that premise.
We are here to help give you back your quality of life with specialized classes designed to meet the needs of someone with Parkinson's.
Parkinson’s affects many aspects of the brain and produces many symptoms, such as balance issues, coordination problems and difficulty with movement. Now, these factions are what boxing training aims to improve, as well as to enhance general health and well-being, which is contrary to the treatment you may expect a Parkinson’s disease victim to partake in. I should add; these boxing classes are strictly non-contact, so they just place emphasis on improving the body and brain’s functioning to soften the symptoms.
